UpTown Celebrations absolutely ROCKS!!! The dance floor was PACKED from the moment the music started until the last song ended. The band is full of energy, and truly knows how to read the crowd - playing song after song that everyone knew and loved. We did not want the night to end!! We could have kept dancing for hours. The band played music that all of our guests loved, and even invited guests to come up on stage and sing along. The entire band was having just as much fun as us -- and it showed in their performance. We'd recommend UpTown Celebration to any family member or friend for their wedding or other special event. Thanks again,

Uptown celebration was fantastic in every aspect of my experience with them. Our wedding was a bit unique in that it started at 11:30 in the morning and didn't end until 10:30 at night. My guests played lawn games and camp activities in the earlier part of the day, before having a more traditional wedding reception in the evening. It was a really hot day, and even though my guests had been celebrating for 5 hours in the sun before the band even started playing, Uptown Celebration kept my guests excited and on the dance floor all night. They were great to work with in the months leading to the event, making sure they understood my timeline for the reception, getting everyone's names right for introductions, and finding and playing a couple songs via ipod that were requested they didn't happen to know. They didn't bat an eye when we had a major shake up in the wedding party and they were notified only an hour or so before the introductions. I would recommend this band to anyone, including my closest friends, if they want to throw a great party. Uptown Celebration acted as true professionals, and all my guests complimented me on choosing a great band for my wedding. I would not hesitate to book them again.

"I had Uptown Celebrations perform at my wedding. I knew they were going to be good, but they knocked it out of the park! Everything went smooth from the very beginning. Gary was excellent in communicating with me before the big day to make sure we were on the same page with all of my little details. Kelly, who was our m.c. for the evening, was phenomenal and really tied everything together for us. It is unbelievable the range of songs this band can play, and that they can play them all well!!! My father couldn't believe that I wanted to have a band at the wedding because he said the songs never sound as good as the originals, but after Uptown finished their first set, he came up to me and said, 'Okay, I was wrong. These guys are awesome!' I just wanted to thank them all again from the bottom of my heart for making our special day everything that I hoped it would be. You guys are awesome!"

UpTown Celebration was AMAZING! From the beginning, they were responsive, quick and detail-oriented on email! During the planning process they were very flexible with song requests and those songs that they didn't play they made sure got played during the band break on their iPod. They updated their set list several times for us until it was EXACTLY what we wanted, which was incredible. They were very professional MC-ing toasts and first dances and made sure everything was announced just as we wanted it. At our wedding, the stage looked phenomenal and they sounded amazing! The dance floor was packed the entire night---people didn't want to leave! We had many guests come and tell us how great the band was and how much fun they were having. They even learned our first dance and father/daughter/son/mother song and they sounded unbelievable! The band was very fun and friendly and quickly checked in during the night to make sure all was going as we had hoped. My now husband and I even got to go on stage and sing with them for a song----simply perfect! After our wedding we received a follow-up email as well, which I really appreciated! We go to MANY weddings every year and we really are grateful we found UpTown Celebration because they helped us make our wedding more fun than we ever thought it could be and highly recommend them for any celebratory gathering!

Uptown Celebration was such a hit at our wedding! We had so many comments from our friends and family about how fun the band was and how great their selection of music was. The dance floor was packed the entire night- we have only the band to thank for that!! The band went above and beyond to learn new songs just for our wedding, which made it so personal and made us realize very quickly how much they genuinely cared about our wedding day. The band was full of energy through the very last song. We look forward to seeing the band at their public shows just to enjoy their music some more!! Thanks again and again!

Highly, Highly recommend UPTOWN CELEBRATION for your next event!!! Of all the things we had to organize and worry about for our 200+ guest list wedding, Uptown Celebration had me at easy from the beginning. They were more than accommodating from the start to finish. Everyone loved them; asked for their cards and kept the dance floor full all night!!

Uptown Celebration gave an amazing performance at my wedding! We danced non-stop and my friends and family are still talking about how great they were! I found the band to be incredibly easy to work with in terms of the set list and our first dance selection. One of the highlights were the props, i.e. they passed around the tambourines and cow bell for some audience interaction which really helped get the little kids (and even some adults) at our wedding excited to dance and have fun. The dance sets flew by and everyone had an amazing time, I could not be more grateful to the band for helping to make our wedding reception an awesome and memorable time!

Uptown Celebration went above and beyond with their music. Each band member was fantastic. We received compliments at the wedding as soon as they started playing and after the wedding about how fantastic and talented they are. The singing is out of this world. They are flexible with appointment times, easy to work with and friendly! We had so much fun with them at our wedding and they did a great job leading the way and their emcee services. I really cannot put into words how fantastic and talented they truly are. If you want a band that are great at what they do and sound EXCELLENT live and can get a party started...Uptown Celebration are for you.

We are a beach community on Lake Winnipesaukee and have had an annual beach party with a live band or DJ for many years. Uptown Celebration was the best band we have had. The entire band was wonderful. They were fantastic to work with and their playlist was awesome. The party caters to people ages 2 to over 80 and everyone was happy!! I would recommend Uptown Celebration for any type of event. They were just Fantastic!!!!!

I have been involved with bands since my college days booking frat party rock bands and doing several concerts that were very successful. I firmly believe that the band makes the party, not DJ's. Uptown Celebration is the best dance and party band I have ever seen and they are the nicest people not just to work with but real people. They made my dad's 90th birthday spectacular right from the first dance and throughout the entire evening. Thanks so much, can't wait to see and hear you guys again.

Allyson, Randolph, MA (gig ID# 1065050)
You guys were absolutely a blast. We had fantastic comments from all our guests - they kept telling us how much they loved all the music and that they never had danced so much in their lives - you were certainly a hit. Thanks again.

UPTOWN CELEBRATION was nothing short of perfect! From the very first time I contacted them to our thank you's and goodbyes, Uptown Celebration, Gary , Kelly and the entire band, were professional, excited and approachable. They catered to our requests, added a few songs that were key to our guests of honor and MC'd the entire evening! Our guests are still raving about their music and vocals. THIS is what really made our celebration a success. We had the best time and I am SO grateful and so fortunate to have found them. It made me look like a professional party planner Thank you!
Paula D, Boston, MA (gig ID# 1083844)

Our dance floor was full from the moment UpTown Celebration started playing. They are a versatile band with a phenomenal sound and an accommodating nature. They not only have talent, but also, a great sense of humor and did their best to make sure our reception was enjoyed by everyone. I booked them "unseen" and could not have been more satisfied with the result. Thanks again.

Kind Regards,

Great band and great people. I am so lucky to have chosen UpTown Celebration for my party. They were awesome - they involved the crowd and kept them on the dance floor all night. They were super in playing requests and even let a few of my guests sing along with them. Top notch and A+ rating all around.
Teddy B, Rye, NH (gig ID# 1004913)
Uptown Celebration is an awesome and upbeat band that would be a great addition to any corporate event, wedding, or other special occasion. Their vocals are great and their song list spans many generations. The 200 guests at my corporate party were very complimentary of the band and thoroughly enjoyed their music! Most guests were on their feet dancing the night away. They are an ideal band for any event and they certainly have a knack getting people on their feet.
Greg D, Manchester, NH (gig ID# 1000748)
The whole experience was great from the very beginning to the very end. They were incredibly easy to work with and took care of 100 percent of all the details so we didn't have to worry about anything. They accomodated every request and were a blast when interacting with our guests. The dance floor was full all night and nobody wanted the party to end. Would definitely recommend UpTown a million times over. Thank you so much.

We hired UpTown Celebration for a housewarming party at our home in Wellesley. They MADE the party. It's been a month since the event and my friends are STILL talking about our band! They were great to work with and incredibly talented as musicians. They had everybody dancing and having the time of their lives! I know it won't be long 'til we get to hear them again, as many of my friends are planning on booking them for their own parties. What a blast! Thanks, Gary and UpTown Celebration for being so amazing!
